power and yet there's president obama today exasperated, talking about how his hands are tied hereby can do nothing. it is a national security matter on which he just has no authority to fix the problem. because even as the cheney doctrine of executive power lives on and the congress wants to foist on the presidency the constitutionally inconceivable power to wage war forever on his own say-so without checking with anybody, despite all that, on this one issue on an offshore issue in communist cuba, on this one thing the congress has decided to get up on its hynde legs and tell the president, no, mr. president, you are don't get to decide, we do. >> i've asked to review everything we've done in guantanamo, and i'm going to reengage with congress to try to make the case that this is not something in the best interest of the american people and it's not sustainable. the notion we're going to continue to keep over a hundred individuals in no man's land in perpetuity, even at a time when we've wound down the war in iraq, we're winding down the war in afghan stan, we're having success defeatin

? >> doing all right. your lead story talking about president obama's et putti house democrats in a tough spot. how is that helping? >> health care's become a problem in general for democrats right now if you think about it in two different areas. one, the budget that the president put forward does go after entitlement spending in a specific way which you talk about a lot on this show. for house democrats, they feel like running off the election that complicates their lives because they like to attack republicans for trying to reduce spending on entitlement programs. that's one box. there's a new poll out this morning by the kaiser foundation that shows that support for the obama health care law has dropped eight points. it's now at about 34%. and you saw in the debate last night where she was distancing herself from the obama health care law. i think there's a lot of democrats worried that the implementation has been very difficult, unpopular, particularly for small business owners and it could be very problematic for them in off-year elections, much like it was in 2010. >> i read a "wal

will give you michelle obama's arms. yes, indeed, this news. everywhere i went yesterday people were talking about did you hear what happened in boston. stunning arrest of three young men there. buddies of zark off -- dzhokhar tsarnaev. phillip has been covering this for the atlantic wire. he joins us on our news line this morning. good to talk to you. tell us, who were the three -- i'm not going to try to pronounce their names. what was their connection to the suspect? >> so the three additional people who were arrested yesterday were -- [ indiscernible ] >> bill: good for you. >> all of whom joined dzhokhar tsarnaev in 2011 at school, they started school at the same time. there were initial reports the three were roommates of tsarnaev although that is not the case. tsarnaev had a dorm room on campus and the other three lived off campus but they were all friends which is probably why they ended up getting into trouble. >> bill: two of them had already been under arrest, correct? for not attending classes? that's right? or violations. >> two citizens of kazakhstan had been detained at some p
. you know the message is okay, i will cross the red line that president barack obama of the united states keeps talking about. why does the u.s. say there is a read line on these issues? tens of thousands have been killed in the war. why a red line on this. >>. >> because if there was an incident or a massive attack, chemical weapons are used and 5,000 people die, or even 200 or 400 or 600 people die, and this is the first recognized use of chemical weapons against a civilian population in a decade and half, and there is no response, then you are encouraging every regime in the world that what is these horrible weapons to use them. this is the danger. that president, because he put this red line out there, could make himself look weak. could make the united states look weak. and could encourage others to use these things. >> right. >> that if you use the weapons and there is no response, then assad could feel em boldened. i can do this more and more. maybe his trial balloon, if you will. seems ridiculous to use a trial balloon like that. imagine, just to make an acorn size one and
and the bombing suspect. does the obama administration want to strike a deal that spares his life? i'll talk about that with the former director of national intelligence in just a moment. i will also ask him about president obama defending the fbi's handling of the boston bombing investigation, insisting there was no intelligence breakdown. listen to what the president said. >> the russian intelligence services had alerted u.s. intelligence about the older brother as well as the mother, indicating that they might be sympathizers to extremists. the fbi investigated that older brother. it's not as if the fbi did nothing. >> the president is also responding to senator lindsey gra graham who is comparing boston to benghazi, saying the ultimate blame falls on the white house. tonight, along with female dna, one fingerprint has been found on the boston bomb debris. a short time ago we learned the attorney for tamerlan tsarnaev's widow says the remains will be released to the family and she is cooperating fully with law enforcement. tonight for the first time, the suspect's carjacking victim named danny
and obama want to talk about the cooperation they are doing and appear to want to be talking positively about that. we also heard from an aide from putin in moscow saying quite simply the continuation of cooperation will continue. severe obvious efforts for cooperation here on the surface. combined with some strange back chatter we're hearing from, you know, on the hill, et cetera, about there not really having been as much information coming from the russians as they would have liked, but looking around, we have the russians repeatedly warning the americans well before tsarnaev came on the radar after boston and further information going from the russians to americans about potential lipgs between the mother and sons discussing jihad over the telephone. so there seems to be a chain of information. you don't quite know it's actions of russians in dagestan over the weekend and raid and continuous pass of information feeds together. there certainly seems to be adequate exchange of information right now. wolf, the presidents are talking in a cooperative fashion, wolf? >> that's important,

options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n

as he has through the presidency between issues and crises not of his choice, obama seemed like a spectator as if he resigned himself to a reactive presidency. we have always talked about the thunder heads in congress. >> even when you were there. >> the exception. >> can i correct you? especially when i was there. there were more thunder heads per square inch. >> i covered congress before you, joe, it was even worse then. >> we are at a strange point where the president is not even six months into his second term and he already looks like a lame duck to many people who are top analyst. >> this is a familiar pattern sometimes in second terms but if you look back at six months and where barack obama thought he might be today, i hate to use this analogy but he is like my washington nationals. expectations are pretty high and barely keeping his head above water. i agree with sam's examples but the sequestration itself -- >> isn't it fascinating, al? i remember a lot of us talking to the president before and talking to president's people, they really believed that the re-election wo

talking about immigration. you and dennis miller were discussing my remarks a day or two later and mr. miller was complaining, as i recall it, that president obama had about called it terrorism on the first day. he waited until the second day. that was an appropriate criticism given his viewpoint of the president. the notion you suspend discussion of important issues in face of tragedy, i do not accept. but i did begin the interview with my feeling of sadness and condolences for people. >> bill: here is why it might be inappropriate. because when you say that look, no tax cut would help this situation, you basically polarizing americans who want lower taxes, smaller government. but in a time like this, in boston, and you're from boston, i wanted to see -- i called for on the air all americans to come together. all right? not only to support the grieving families -- grieving families but to show the world we're a united front. and you are not going to come in here to our house and intimidate us. >> bill: i agree. >> bill: by your rhetoric, you're dividing people 24 hours after when i t
